Guys,

 

Is there a way i can change the default quantity (total length) of pipe on the BOM of the isometric, changing it from Meter to Millimeter.

 

 

Thanks

Open IsoConfig.xml of your style format, and search the following lines, change scale in the las line from 0,001 to 1:

<!-- 'Prefix': (string); The prefix that will be added to the formatted measurement. -->
<!-- 'Suffix': (string); The suffix that will be appended to the formatted measurement. -->
<!-- 'Scale': (double); The scale factor that will apply to the measurement. e.g. 0.001. -->
<!-- 'Decimal': (string); The decimal separator. e.g. '.', ',' or ' '. -->

i don't have the answer for your question but me i have one for you! How did you seperate your pipe size in the BOM

 

I always have label #1 for every pipe nominal size and grouped in item #1 in BOM. I tried different description and it always group it in item #1 with 2 description side by side....
